WITH the cost of living so high right now, one thing most of us will avoid replacing is furniture.
The truth is, if it does the job then you should probably stick around, otherwise you’re throwing money away.
But that doesn’t mean you can liven up your furniture a bit.
A woman has shared her chair painted with handmade fabric.
In an online video, Megan said: “I painted fabric and before you freak out, it actually turned out super cute.”
Megan broke down her process for her followers: “I started by mixing latex paint and fabric softener at a 50/50 ratio because I had too much fabric softener in the beginning and it was too thick.”
She said: “Then I sprayed the fabric with a mixture of 50 percent water and 50 percent fabric softener.”
Megan says this is a great DIY if you don’t want to reupholster an old piece of furniture.
She said, “Then I started painting and this is a terrific DIY if you don’t want to reupholster your whole piece or if you’re going for a full leather look.”
After the first thought, he had made a big mistake.
She said: “This was the moment where I thought I really messed up. He looked so scratchy and she hated him.”
Megan soon found a way to get the look she wanted.

She said: “But it really just needed a second coat of paint and it turned out perfect.”
Megan loved the final look, saying, “The final product looks like embossed faux leather to me and I love it.”
Megan concluded: “It is free of cracks and scratches.”
The video now has more than 15.7 million views.
Viewers had mixed responses.
One commenter said, “Something about painting fabric makes me uncomfortable and I can’t explain why, even though it looks cool.”
A second commenter said: “It was so pretty before, although [though] that hurt a little.
Another said: “I’m so glad I trusted the process. I still rocked that paint cloth which really worked.”
